Gold Medal Count 2012: US Athletes Who Will Add to Impressive Total
The U.S. has already racked up 43 medals at the 2012 London Olympics, one more than second-place China.
This includes 21 gold medals, which leads this year's Summer Games.
But we're not done yet, folks. We still have plenty of events left after the Americans excelled in gymnastics and swimming.
Here's a look at some Americans who will add to the United States' collection of gold medals this summer.
Serena Williams, Tennis
After disposing of world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka in straight sets in the semifinals, 14-time Grand Slam singles champion Serena Williams will face world No. 3 Maria Sharapova in the women's singles final on Saturday.
Williams has never won an Olympic individual gold medal, but she does have two doubles golds with sister Venus.
This may be Williams' year, though. Her victory over Azarenka was very convincing and she holds an 8-2 record over Sharapova. She's won their last seven matches, including the final of the 2007 Australian Open.
Jordan Burroughs, Wrestling
Jordan Burroughs is favored to win the 74-kilogram freestyle division this year. The 24-year-old won gold in the division in the 2011 World Championships and the 2011 Pan American Games.
This will be Burroughs' first trip to the Olympics, but he's exploded in the last year and should take home yet another gold for the Americans.
Sanya Richards-Ross, Athletics
Who has the best chance of bringing home the gold?
Sanya Richards-Ross, who placed first in the opening round of the women's 400 meters on Friday, is favored to win the event outright this year.
The 27-year-old captured gold in the 4X400 relay the past two Olympics and won the bronze medal in the 400 meters in 2008.
Richards-Ross is even stronger in 2012, however. Richards-Ross just won the gold medal in the 400 meters in the 2012 World Indoor Championships with a time of 50.79 seconds.
